Master storyteller and performer James Braly is at Dixon Place for the next few weekends with his new show, Asylum. The show is described as, “The darkly comic true story of a high school pothead who checks himself into the only place he can’t get high: a psychiatric hospital. There, he makes the disturbing discovery that some of the patients are actually crazy and some of the counselors are nuts – but they’re all more sane than his family.”
Along with our weekly music and art opening picks (not to mention the Big Art Group Takeover at Abrons), here are a few other activities you might want to check out on this action-packed weekend:
